At the Hamden Academy of Dance & Music, our goal is to instill professionalism, uniformity, and confidence through the art of dance and music. All students will learn to be accountable for their actions. Our intention is to incorporate strict policies that will assist students with future endeavors.
As a parent we realize you have a choice between several different music and dance schools. All studios are not the same. We constantly renovate and improve our facility and provide ongoing training to our staff to ensure we are always providing our students and parents with the best experience possible.
Since our beginnings in 2002, over 2,000 students have passed through our doors. Many of our graduates have gone on to collegiate level dance programs, a few earning their Bachelor's in Fine Arts, some are currently dance teachers, business owners, professional performers and gracing Broadway stages. Two of our most notable alumni are Shennell Edmounds who starred on One life to live actress, Brandon"Avery" Wilson recording artist and phenomenal dancer and Doug Lyons of Dream Girls, The Book of Mormons and Broadway's Beautiful.
Our platform is dance and our foundation is grounded in discipline. This type of discipline and the education first environment has assisted with many of our graduates level of expectation...The above information primarily focused on the aspiring performers who reached out and grabbed their artistic paths....however I must acknowledge....the social workers, teachers, nurses, community advocates, entrepreneurs and hard working individuals who have become positive resources....in their communities.
The practice of dance encourages students to grace the arts through expressive movement and physical composition. Our music academy nurtures an appreciation for sound, structure, and musical arrangement and refines melodic aptitude.
